A quiet supper with the children/

Au Bon Climat 2001... oxidised

Deep with only hint of brown, sparkles.
Wonderful woodland nose that improved over an hour, cigarbox, fruit and
spice.
Good entry but weak middle. Fruit still there but tannins going. Long.
This wonderful wine is on the slide.

Thanks for the note, John. I have but a single bottle of this, a gift
back in '85 from my future wife. As your storage conditions are almost
certainly better than what my bottle has put up with during our
peregrinations, I'll probably open mine up rather on the soonish side.
